New World: Let the Giant Turkey Hunt Begin

New World Update 1.7.2
Update 1.7.2 Amazon Game Studios

Update 1.7.2 for New World marks the beginning of the annual Turkolon event, where players will hunt a giant turkey in specific areas of the game.

New Event

In New World, the Turkolon is a giant turkey that roams in several locations within eight different zones, including Mouringdale, Brightwood, Restless Short, Everfall, Windward, Monarch’s Bluff, Cutlass Keys, and First Light.

The Turkolon is not something that players can defeat by themselves. In fact, it’s so tanky that a bunch of people are needed to take this giant turkey down.

While it’s walking around Aeternum, the Turkolon will occasionally lay some eggs that explode when players go near them. Apart from that, it is capable of shooting lasers from its eyes, dealing tons of damage to anyone unfortunate enough to get hit.

Players who are able to defeat the Turkolon successfully will receive a Massive Turkey Leg, an artifact ingredient used to cook the Roasted Monstrous Turkey Dinner. The said dish provides a temporary buff to Constitution and Luck when consumed.
